Village View – Week of August 2
A Note on Visiting the Abode
Our mountain is currently restricted to foot traffic only, and only to invited guests. Anyone not residing or working at the Abode must obtain permission to come on campus and must pass NY State mandated screening protocols. All visitors to the Abode are required to wear a face mask while on campus. Access to our buildings is restricted to staff and residents.
We realize that it is very difficult for many to stay away from the home of their heart for so long. We believe that the virus is not done with us yet, and are working towards developing ways we can accommodate visitors while remaining vigilant.
If you would like to inquire about visiting the Abode, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Because we are working reduced hours, our response to you may be delayed.

In honor of National Peace Month, the Abode will be sharing quotes from Nobel Peace Prize winners. This week we highlight 1992 winner, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, a K’iche’ Indigenous feminist and human rights activist born in Guatemala in 1959.
Menchú has dedicated her life to promoting indigenous rights and to pursuing justice for indigenous groups who suffered human rights violations during the 36-year long Guatemalan Civil War that ended in 1996.
She ran for president of Guatemala in 2007 and 2011, having founded the country’s first Indigenous political party, Winaq.
